I wrote, a couple months earlier, a problem with if_iwi on an IBM

I set dev.iwi.0.antenna to 1 to turn the antenna on. Now despite the
wifi indicator remaining off, the card is still able to scan and
associate to access points (well, assuming you loaded the firmware :P).
As soon as the card associates, the indicator will then switch on.
To rid myself of the "unknown notification type 15," messages, I applied
Mentioned on Damien's forum here:
So, while the driver seems unable to turn the card on, its actually some
quirk with the wifi indicator. Just remember to turn the antenna on!
